This is a fantastic opportunity for an entrepreneurial-minded people expert to build from scratch a high-performance talent recruitment + HR machine for a 100% remote company. Over the last 9 years, weve grown to a $50MM+ company with 100+ teammates with no HR at all, but now need a strong talent + HR leader to help us march toward our goal of becoming a billion dollar brand by 2023.

Hello, my name is Marc Stockman, CEO of Metabolic Living, and I need your help. Our mission at Metabolic Living is to make our metabolism-first lifestyle the worldwide standard for healthy living. Even without the current pandemic, people struggle with their health, confused by so many competing options that dont get results. So, weve developed a simple process anybody can follow to optimize their metabolism to deliver the energy their body needs to thrive.

In spite of the crisis the world is in, were growing, because of the products and services we sell. Our goal is to build a $1 billion dollar consumer brand by 2023 and our people will play an enormously important role in achieving that. Well add 50 100 people in the next 12 months and are launching our new brand and flagship e-commerce website this summer (more on that below).

Obviously, we have VERY ambitious goals, which requires a strong team of high-performing, yet humble talent. However, weve reached the point where we can no longer manage this in an ad hoc way and need a truly strong leader who is excited at the challenge of building a state-of-the-art talent recruitment + HR machine from scratch. Youll essentially be building your own high-performance recruiting and talent management agency, in-house. You will 100% own this from A-Z. Exciting!

And at a personal level, this is an extraordinarily meaningful hire, because Ill be working directly with you to ensure our high-performing, yet humble culture is implemented in a way that can scale. So many companies either never define their culture clearly or see it fall apart as they scale. That will not happen to us. Our people are our lifeblood. Nothing is more important.

That means following our 5-P talent model: recruiting the right people, developing the right processes, developing the right policies, implementing the right programs and offering the right perks all to attract, cultivate and retain only the best people who are a culture fit.

And this is a unique challenge because we have been 100% remote and always will be, so its really an exciting for us to build something new and powerful together. Building strong remote teams requires a different approach both hiring different people and nurturing them differently.

So, if you were born a people person who loves to coach, have a passion for all-things-HR and love EVERY aspect of it, know exactly how to spin up and scale up a high-performing team and

  • You LOVE the challenge of rolling up your sleeves to build this from scratch
  • You LOVE picking through resumes to find the needle in a haystack
  • You LOVE coaching people 1-on-1 to cultivate their talents and work through challenges
  • You LOVE all things health and wellness and have a passion for staying fit
  • You LOVE combing strategy, with tactics, with nitty-gritty operational details

Then please read on as youre the ideal candidate and wed love to talk to you ASAP.

To summarize the key points:

  • Salary: $75,000 - $125,000
  • Location: 100% Remote (virtual team of 100+ with no corporate office)
  • Benefits: Full Insurance (health, dental & long-term disability) + Robust 401k
  • Hours: 8:30 a.m. 5:00 p.m. (preferably Eastern time but flexible for right candidate)
  • Culture: High-Performance but Humble (no jerks) that Creates Space for Deep Work
  • Personality: Obsessed with Details so We can Simplify the Complex for Others

Who is This Opportunity Perfect for?

This is the perfect opportunity for a proven talent / HR leader who loves to roll up their sleeves, has an unstoppable drive for excellence and who might relate to any of these:

If youre drowning in the corporate world, bored out of your mind from the same meaningless day-to-day humdrum, micromanaging bosses, endless meetings, constant interruptions and no respect for the quiet time you need to actually get work done, this is your opportunity to simplify and go deep to pour your heart and soul into ONE big meaningful opportunity and scale it like never before.

Or, if youve been at a fast-growing start-up, but they havent turned the corner and learned how to grow without the stress, how to deliver results without working past 5 p.m., how to not burn the candle at both ends, how to create a profitable business model that doesnt depend on the whims of VC or PE world to provide the next round of funding this is your opportunity to take back control, live life under your own terms and design a lifestyle that brings you joy, happiness and satisfaction.

Regardless of your situation, whether you prefer to work in the quiet of your own home, sipping a delicious cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop, or outside enjoying the sunshine on a bright, beautiful day AND you are a humble, high-performing individual who would THRIVE in this type of environment, then please read on, as we cant wait to meet you.

Who Are We and Whats the Companys Background?

Metabolic Livings mission is to empower people to thrive EVERY day so they can enjoy life to the fullest. And our vision is to do this by making our metabolism-first lifestyle become the worldwide standard for healthy living. Its a flexible, fun lifestyle thats 100% focused on delivering the results that matter: feeling your best, looking your best and performing your best. In the shortest time possible.

It puts YOU back in control. It helps YOU understand how your body and metabolism works. It empowers YOU to fix your own problems. And because it alleviates the frustration and confusion so many of us experience when trying to fix our health, it makes you want to tell the world about it.

Our goal is to grow into a billion-dollar multi-channel brand thats distributed via online, mobile and physical retail. For 10 years, weve been painstakingly building the products, services, framework, team and culture to make this happen. We have a robust, mature, complete and profitable business model with scalable customer acquisition. And now were pushing into a massive new growth phase.

Weve built a full ecosystem of products that allow someone to live a metabolism-first lifestyle. This includes exercise and nutrition programs, nutraceuticals, functional foods, memberships and coaching programs. Were launching our mobile app later this year, then will push into offline retail, extend into home-delivered meals and more. But ONE thing at a time, just like weve done for 9 years.

Our next major step is rolling out our new Metabolic Living brand and centralized e-commerce website at www.metabolicliving.com, scheduled to be live in first half of 2020. We will consolidate into this centralized website our various product-branded microsites.

So why is a metabolism-first lifestyle needed? Because there are record amounts of sick, overweight, tired and depressed people piling up around the world. Were over-worked, over-stressed, over-fed and full of toxins. And were deprived of the sleep, nutrition, movement and relaxation we need to thrive.

Unfortunately, the typical solution of extreme dieting and exercise traps people into a 1-step-forward, 2-steps back vicious cycle that makes them worse off. They bounce from one latest flavor-of-the-month program to the next, never making progress trapped in a downward spiral of increasing desperation.

And philosophies like Paleo or Vegan, while extremely healthy for some, create a rigid us-vs-them tribal mentality thats self-limiting. Neither of those philosophies work for all people all the time or even the same person all the time. People differ. Bodies change. If thats not respected, things will backfire.

The answer? Instead of trying to FIND the perfect program, you need to CREATE their own one that respects how YOUR body works. And thats where our metabolism-first framework comes in.

It empowers you with a repeatable, customizable method to optimize your metabolism. Because weve found through working with millions of people that a fully optimized metabolism is what delivers the results everyone wants feeling their best, looking their best and performing their best, EVERY day.

So, instead of fighting against your body and getting inconsistent results with a one-size fits all program or protocol, we teach you to work with your body to enjoy consistent results by building your OWN perfect customized program. One thats practical, enjoyable and sustainable and starts working fast.
